The trip to the rainy was a very quick one. There was four of us in the boat and did real well so we had to come home early. grin.gifcool.gif The river is still flowing fast but we were able to use a 1/2 oz jig in certain areas. Most of the time you will have to use a 3/4 oz.. Gold, white glow, red glow seem to be great colors once again. If your venturing out i would recomend bringing two anchors. The biggest fish we caught was only 21 inches but there were tons of 17-19 inchers. Good luck fishing.

We were just a little east of the access. Middle of the river in about 10ft of water. We did the best from about 2:30 till dark. We found a spot where we were able to down size our jigs just a bit and that seemed to be the key. Also it seemed frozen shinners seemed to get more bites, but live was also working. There ray1 now thats a fishing report! grin.gif

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
